I would avoid the book approach, as it is absolutely not mandatory, particularly in these two fields. As far as logic goes, a quick read to the logic in CS page on wikipedia and (much) practice using logic operators in your favourite language(s). Logic for Computer Science: Foundations of Automatic Theorem Proving, Second Edition (Dover Books on Computer Science series) by Jean H. Gallier. This advanced text for undergraduate and graduate students introduces mathematical logic with an emphasis on proof theory and procedures for algorithmic construction of formal proofs.

The aim of logic in computer science is to develop languages to model the situations we encounter as computer science professionals, in such a way that we can reason about them formally. Reasoning about situations means constructing arguments about them; we want to do this formally, so that the arguments are valid and can be defended rigorously. Mathematical Logic for Computer Science is a mathematics textbook with theorems and proofs, but the choice of topics has been guided by the needs of students of computer science. The method of semantic tableaux provides an elegant way to teach logic .

lems that arise in computer science. The notion of a proof plays a central role in this work. Simply put, a proof is a method of establishing truth. Like beauty, “truth” some-times depends on the eye of the beholder, and it should not be surprising that what constitutes a proof differs among ﬁelds. For example, in the judicial system, legal. This book introduces the notions and methods of formal logic from a computer science standpoint, covering propositional logic, predicate logic, and foundations of logic programming. It presents applications and themes of computer science research such as resolution, automated deduction, and logic programming in a rigorous but readable flatmountaingirls.com: Uwe Schöning.
